Sorry, looks like I am fully booked!

    Hey there! My name is David, and I'm a Canadian currently living in New York City. I have almost two decades of experience working in the tech industry. In the last decade, I took on leadership roles to help people grow and succeed in their careers. I am a senior software engineering manager with a ton of experience mentoring engineers and engineering leaders. I like to think of myself as an investor; I love investing my time in people. I enjoy discussing struggles, coaching and checking in with engineers and engineering managers to their goals in my day-to-day job. I speak fluently both French and English. I look forward to jumping on a call with you and getting to know you better.
